I am the oldest child of Harold E. Beard and Daisy Brumfield. I grew up in New Orleans and spent a lot of time on my great grandparents' farm in Salem, Walthall Co., MS. Our family cemetery (Spence) is located there on original property of my ancestor, William Washington Spence.
I became interested in genealogy at a young age, listening to stories told by my great grandmother, Ettie Spence Pigott. Since then, researching ancestors and related families has become a life-long adventure. It is my favorite hobby and past-time.
I am an educator by profession. I do teacher training at Southeastern Louisiana University.
I have been fortunate enough to have lived abroad in Brazil, and traveled extensively in the Americas, the Caribbean and Europe. (I have been to thirty countries and every state in the USA.)
